Since her first album Diamond in the Rough (2009) catapulted her onto the SF Bay Area music scene, Aprylle’s voice, energy and lyrics have captivated audiences across California and around the world. Facing the world solo and all original, Aprylle has made a name for herself captivating audiences large and small and doing it on her own terms. Part of Aprylle’s on-stage charm lies in her autobiographical stories and relatable themes of love, longing, and learning to be true to yourself that enchant and inspire everyone who hears them.
Engaging her audience with nothing more than her voice and an acoustic guitar (and recently her ukulele), she has been likened to Michelle Branch and Sheryl Crow. She has become a regular at clubs and festivals in the Bay Area and has performed in prestigious venues such as the House of Blues, on Sunset Strip in Hollywood CA and on the historic Golden Gate Bandshell Stage in Golden Gate Park.
Among her supporters, Aprylle counts Greg Kihn (“Breakup Song”, Jeopardy) who called her a “ball of fire” when she opened for him in Santa Cruz, CA. and her long-time friend Gary Pihl of the legendary classic rock band, Boston, who dropped by the studio during the recording of Aprylle’s 2nd release, Exactly Like Me (2011), lending his signature rock guitar sound to her track, “With a Love Song”. Aprylle’s 3rd album of original music, Beginning, was release in 2014. It is notable that even with friends in high places, Aprylle remains humble and true to herself.
All her albums are available on all major music streaming services.

Her featured song, “Right Where I’m Standing”, responds to well-meaning fans who offer her advice on how to make it to the big time. “I’m just so happy right where I am,“ she explained. I’m a huge fan of island life,” she continued. “I wanted to share my love of Hawaii where I hang out half the year with my sailboat, Passion. I learned to play ukulele after receiving one as a gift in Hawaii and I decided to use it as the main rhythm instrument for most of the songs on my new album. When I brought the song to my producer, Robert Berry, he enthusiastically embraced the idea of an island theme and suggested a reggae rhythm for the ukulele track…and that is how the album began.”
